Holy Island Prints for Sale | Prints of Lindisfarne – Alan Reed
Alan Reed describes how to paint on his blog
During the Easter Holidays, we crossed the causeway to Holy Island so that I could get reference of the boats at low tide. Unfortunately, there were just a few small boats. I still painted a couple of sketchbook watercolours to get some ideas.

There was more than enough time for me to do another sketchbook watercolour. This time I focused on the sunlight catching the tops of the clouds and sparkling on the incoming sea.
Back in the studio I was able to compose a scene of Holy Island. I used a combination of sketchbook watercolours and photographs of the castle and a yacht at low tide from an estuary. Holy Island Prints are available from our Studio in Ponteland.
This new original watercolour is also available as a limited edition print in several sizes starting from £65 unframed.

Holy Island of Lindisfarne, commonly known as either Holy Island or Lindisfarne, is a tidal island off the northeast coast. The North East Coast of England, constitutes the civil parish of Holy Island in Northumberland. Wikipedia
I have recently been working on a large painting project to refurbish a clients property on the Northumbrian Coast. The coastal theme is entered on some of the castles, beaches and small boats that grace Northumberland’s picturesque harbours.These Prints of Holy Island are now available to purchase at www.alanreed.com
Although I do have a large collection of prints of Northumberland, I felt it would enrich the range if I did some new works. Two of the new prints are of Alnmouth and Holy Island Prints which you can read about in a previous blog post.
The other two are of Beadnell Harbour and Holy Island at Low Tide. For these new works, I made special trips to do some sketchbook work for fresh reference to add to previous studies.
